Greenest Band in the Land has an Earth Day special

How do you become the "Greenest Band in the Land?" I'm not sure, but that's what Mother earth News labeled The Giving Tree Band recently.

I don't generally point to sales, but this gimmick caught my eye. On Earth Day (April 22), 50% of Giving Tree Band proceeds will go to Global Green USA. They're also performing at University of Chicago's Earth Day Festival on April 23 and there's a good chance you'll hear some new music from their new album, The Joke, The Threat, & The Obvious due out this fall.

The bluegrass/folk inspired indie group have several instruments hand made from naturally fallen trees and reclaimed wood and their second album, Great Possessions, was recorded with 100% solar-energy - not to mention the band bicycled back and forth from the recording studio to save air emissions. - i suppose that answers my question above.
